All fans of great literature will already know the incredible work of John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester, but sometimes his work can be so cryptic as to be opaque. Luckily, the previous owner of this used book was kind enough to add her marginalia to increase understanding.

Found this notecard report/biography assignment near my apartment building on 110th Street in Manhattan. I love the detail. This kid wants to make sure the details are correct. (“Soon to be called explorer Pizzaro”)
“He explored doing good things but he went into doing minor bad things.” Don’t we all little kid, don’t we all?

We always eat in our company’s cafeteria. As you walk out, there is a board of comment cards for people to express their feelings on the cafeteria food. So as we leave, we often read them for a little laugh. This card was just hilarious. I had to take it. If someone has frustrations about the clumped pepperonis on their calzone, I can’t even imagine their home life problems.

Found this in my college hall shortly after a freshman alcohol workshop. It appears to be a very controlled rant, or the beginning of a poem. I have no idea why it was left behind, because parts of it were carefully erased and redone and the handwriting is so deliberate.
